A few loose screws...Make that a lot!

So, Deb and I have been taking The Bettye (Thor 23 U) out for the last 3 weekends. Lots of squeeking and rattles throughout the coach. Took a screwdriver to the many loose screws I found. WOW! Also placed a drop of wood glue on many, many screws. Replaced quite a few striped out screw holes with larger diameter screws too.
What a difference! Solid feeling door closure. Less rattle. Tight locking door with no wiggle of the key to engage the bolt!
Good advice for any newbie like me or an oldster to keep in mind.
BTW went to Camping World St. louis today. What an over priced rip off! Most of the products are 15 to 30 % more than they are worth. Had to use my 25 dollar coupon from GoodSam Club Membership.
The free dump station was nice and easy to use though!

Besides the screws you tightened, it is always wise to check the screws in the 120 V AC breaker panel. Remove all power though before.
